Supplementary notes

* Change in definition of other deaths following contact in 2010/11 to include only cases subject to an independent investigation. Expansion of IPCC investigative resource and capacity to conduct more independent investigations into serious and sensitive matters – this has a direct impact on the number of other contact deaths that are reported.
